Jeremiah 36:18  (King James Version)
Then Baruch answered them, He pronounced all these words unto me with his mouth, and I wrote them with ink in the book.

Jeremiah 36:2 Jeremiah 36:4 ; Jeremiah 43:2 Jeremiah 43:3 Proverbs 26:4 Proverbs 26:5

with ink
{Baddeyo} is rendered by some, after him; but {deyo} (in Chaldee and Syriac {deyootha,} and in Welsh {du,}) certainly denotes ink; whence are derived the Arabic {dawat} and {deweet,} and Persian {deeveet,} an ink-holder; the Syriac
{dayowo}, and Persian {div,} the devil. So the Alexandrian
copy of the LXX. has [en melani,] and Vulgate {atramento,} "with ink." Perhaps the princes supposed that Baruch had
written this roll from memory; and that it was rather to be considered as his composition, than the substance of Jeremiah's prophecies; and they might ask this apparently frivolous question in order to allay the alarms excited by considering it as the word of God. But Baruch, with great simplicity, so answered their question, as to shew that he only acted as Jeremiah's amanuensis, and wrote verbatim what he had dictated.
